I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.
In a large container (5 gallons or more) it would be okay but it would do best in the soil. You can leave the tape in place at least until it is able to start climbing on some other trellis you provide.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
